Politicians: always the last to jump on a trend.
Pok├â┬⌐mon Go has been EVERYWHERE the last week, causing its fair share of controversy and leading to countless viral news stories, so it only makes sense that Donald Trump would jump on the bandwagon now — and boy, did he ever!
The video — titled Crook├â┬⌐d Hillary NO — imitates the popular game and shows Clinton being captured by a Pokeball just like the ones used in the real thing.
It then offers up some stats about the “career politician,” including her “30,000 emails deleted” and the like.
Ch-ch-check out the vid (below)!
But wait! There’s more!
Clinton spent Thursday at a campaign rally in Virginia, where she made her own Pok├â┬⌐mon Go joke about how she wished the mobile game could help voter turnout with young people:
“I’m trying to figure out how we get them to have ├óΓé¼╦£Pokemon Go’ to the polls.”
And she matched The Donald in jumping on the Pok├â┬⌐mon train, too!
Clinton’s campaign website announced that on Saturday, she’s holding a campaign event at Madison Park in Lakewood, Ohio — a place that has a Pok├â┬⌐mon Go gym AND a Pok├â┬⌐stop!!
The Clinton campaign noted both in their reveal (below):
“Join us as we go to the Pok├â┬⌐stop in Madison Park and put up a lure module, get free pok├â┬⌐mon, and battle each other while you register voters and learn more about Sec. Hillary Clinton!!! Kids welcome!”
2016… what a world!!
